Ned Bigby is the main protagonist of Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide. He's played by Devon Werkheiser.
- Gives tips to people who need them.
- Helps his friends and himself get through middle school.
Ned is very outgoing and funny along with his two best friends, anxious to make it through middle school, and somewhat lazy in classes, but gives the best advice.
Cookie is Ned's male best friend whom he has always looked out for. Ned helps him through anything to survive in school. Cookie used to not like this girl named Lisa Zemo. But in the first episode in season 3, she comes with a new look and gets him obsessed to date her. In the last episode she asks him for pizza and on from there people say they might've become boyfriend/girlfriend.
Moze is Ned's neighbor, female best friend, and, by the end of series, girlfriend. They have known each other since elementary school and longer prior to the series. Ned had fondly given her the nickname "Moze" to separate her from the other "Jennifers" in their class. Halfway through season three, Ned realizes he likes Moze. He states it in the episode "Guide to: When you Like Someone Who's Going Out with Someone Else". In that episode, he wants to tell Moze that he likes her and was going to ask her out, but Suzie returns which kind of distances them. In the last episode/movie (Guide to: Field Trips, Permission Slips, Signs, and Weasels), he wants to spend the field trip with the love of is life. Suzie or Moze? At the end he realizes who he likes and calls Moze and tells her to meet him in the Rose Garden, and finally he asks her out and kisses her.
Suzie is Ned's ex-girlfriend and former crush. About the time when elementary school was ending, he developed a crush on Suzie. However, over time, he had failed to ask her out properly and commit to their dates due to various issues. Eventually, they started a dating relationship, which suffered even more. What's more, Suzie had moved away to live with her dad and Ned had started to realize his feelings for Moze. When she finally returned, things between the three of them got really awkward. Towards the end of the series, they broke up and Ned started dating Moze and Suzie resumed her relationship with Loomer. It's never stated if they made up and remain friends or if they're done with each other for good.
Missy is Ned's rival and enemy. Ned sees Missy as a frenemy some times, but other times views her as a girl with a popular reputation who bullies people. It's later revealed that Missy has feelings for Ned, which he doesn't return.
The Huge Crew is a group of female bullies, led by Doris, that all mutually like Ned. It's clear that Ned would never or could ever like them, even when they help him out. He does appreciate their help, but he does get worried when they either get too excited about him or fiercely devoted to him.
Ned has brown hair, pale skin and blue eyes. He is said to be cute, but very short in the first season. According to Vice Principal Crubbs in Guide to: Field Trips, Permission Slips, Signs and Weasels, he has a "mop-top" haircut (similar to Coconut Head's haircut, which led a security guard to mistake him for Ned) Mop top haircuts were popularized by the Beatles in the 1960s. Most notably, he is short throughout the series and everyone makes sure he knows it. He's a few inches shorter than his best best friends, Cookie and Moze, but he's roughly the same height, if not taller, than them in the series finale.
- Ned is known to try to get nicknames a lot. In the episode Nicknames, he does ridiculous things to get one.

- His nicknames are Crouching Weasel, Chicken Boy, Wedgepicker, Slam, Spazz and Big-bee and Wheels.
- In the episode, "Gym," Ned is revealed to be short. Moze counts his toes on his feet. He seemed to really HATE this as he was smiling the whole time and didn't pull his feet away when Moze tickles his feet.
- He has been into the girl's room on many occasions.
- In season 1 and 2, Ned was shown to be weak and talks like a little boy, however in season 3, he seems to have gotten stronger, unconsciously being able to beat people up.
- Many teachers describe him as smart, but lazy.
